Hallam Harvest Day assemblies

This Harvest, Hallam volunteers are going into schools asking young people to Brighten Up to help to build a brighter future for young people living in fear of violence. Violence is making life harder for the world’s poorest people. CAFOD partners are helping these people to live without fear, by creating safe spaces where they are free to be with their friends and help to build a more peaceful world.

Hallam volunteers have been in 13 schools over 2-3 weeks giving assemblies on the Brighten Up theme that saw the children making ‘peace pies’ and ‘conflict cakes’. This was to highlight that people who live in the poorest communities are faced with the threat of conflict.
